[lldb-dev] ELF file header e_machine number registration, question

I will be happy to be of assistance.   Can I ask you to submit a pro 
forma request to either:

     registry at xinuos.com
     registry at sco.com

and provide a company contact (e-mail is sufficient ) as well as the 
machine description as CSR would like it to appear in Chapter 4 of the 
generic  System V Application Binary Interface.  We do not need to 
consume lldb-dev bandwidth for this registration process.

I am assuming that you wish to keep the EM_KALIMBA e_machine name.

Once I get the machine description from the request, I can complete the 
registration and will add EM_KALIMBA
to the patch that I have prepared to submit to LLVM.
